I'd like to start a discussion on fructose malabsorption, how to control it, what to eat and not eat, etc. . Is anybody interested?

As it ferments in my upper intestine it starts to cause gases and pushes up the acid, I've had surgery so it no longer gets into my esophagus but burns in my upper stomach.

Undigested food fermenting in the small intestine is probably small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO). Have you been diagnosed with that?
Sounds like you have fm; could get a second opinion.
i have it for sure, no doubts!! My point is tests are not always accurate!
Was just responding to other comments!
I had some when they did my scope at Mayo but fruit and some fibers also ferment when I can't digest them properly. The next day after cutting out fruit was finally off my meds I had been on for 20 years.
There are lots of good books on the subject also, Plant Paradox by Dr Gundry is excellent.
No need to apologize! Welcome! Definitely you can have a delayed reaction! Especially in the case of fructans (chains of fructose) but also with fructose. For me if delayed it is usually 8 hours or so, so I eat iffy things in the morning. I find a reaction depends partly on how much fructose/fructans is already in my system. If I have closely followed the diet for three of more days I can usually get away with eating something I couldn't if I'd eaten something I shouldn't have the day before. It is very difficult to find a pattern; it took me about 10 years. Why don't you try the diet I've listed in this fm discussion section? I think it is on about page 5. Fructose is in tons of stuff. You may need a _no_ fructose diet; that's the case with me for the most part. I can't even digest artificial sugars. Best of luck.
Thank you! I will take a look at the diet. That's crazy that a reaction can happen so long after eating something bad.
I just found out I have sucrose intolerance. Every time I ate I had severe gas and distended abdominal. I want to know how anyone can afford Sucraid?
I've never heard of sucrose intolerance. Will have to to some research. Since sucrose is a combination of fructose and glucose, have you been tested for fructose malabsorption? I have fm and cannot tolerate sucrose or glucose.
It's a fructose intolerance or malabsorption, never heard of Sucraid but best things is to cut all all fructose, fruits, sugars ect
